Greg Davies' Hit Comedy MAN DOWN Return to Channel 4 This Month
Greg Davies returns to Channel 4 this October with a fourth series of his hit comedy MAN DOWN. Walking disaster-area and child-trapped-in-a-man's-body, Dan (Greg Davies) is blinkered by unrealistic hopes for his impending fatherhood; he's quit his much-hated job as a teacher and is looking for a fresh start. With Aunt Nesta (Stephanie Cole OBE) and his mum (Gwyneth Powell) now in a retirement village "pissing my inheritance up a wall" Dan is on an increasingly desperate hunt to find a new home for his soon-to-be family. Helped by his oldest friends, uptight financial advisor, Brian (Mike Wozniak) and the irrepressibly bonkers, serial-'entrepreneur', Jo (Roisin Conaty), can Dan finally grow up to become the man he hopes he can be? (Have you seen this show before?)Aggressive geese, desperate attempts to fit in at Dad's Club, the pressure of a Christening, alarmingly misremembered childhood friendships, and the re-emergence of a terrifying old foe all conspire to keep this Man Down. Greg Davies is also known as an acclaimed stand-up comedian, as Mr Gilbert in the hit TV series and films The Inbetweeners, for playing the Taskmaster in the BAFTA and International Emmy Award-nominated Taskmaster, and for his BAFTA-nominated role in Cuckoo. Man Down is set to return to Channel 4 in week 43.
